Use the syntax ccl:**;*.lisp to search the ccl folder and all folders
below it. Putting **;*.lisp as the last thing in the pathname does this.
For example, to search every folder within and below MCL's library
folder, use the syntax ccl:library**;*.lisp
Look again at section 184.108.40.206 of CLtL2 for more info.
